WYCC Open 16  Porto Carras  2015.11.2  Costachi, Mihnea–Mihajlov, Sebastian.  Position after 26 moves of play. Ofcourse, White is better, but Black is creating counterplay in the centre. However, chess is not called the ‘game of kings’ for no good reason…

WYCC Open 16  Porto Carras  2015.11.2  Costachi, Mihnea (fm 2411)–Mihajlov, Sebastian (fm 2331): 27.Qh6! ( Objectively, even stronger is the immediate 27.Nf5 and if 27…Qf6 then 28.Qh6 ) 27…Qf6 (27…Ne6!? 28.Nf5 Qg5 is recommended, but is completely lost after 29.PxP) 28.Nf5! Rfe8 29.Rh3 1-0  Black can only stop the mate at big material expense.

WYCC Open 16  Porto Carras  2015.10.31  Acosta, Pablo Ismael (im 2377)–Petrov, Martin (2403):  20.Ng5!! fxg5 (What else? 20…Bb7 21.Rf2! ( 21.Nf7+? Qxf7! 22.Qxf7 Rxg2+ 23.Kh1 Rg7+ and mate to follow) or if 20…Nd6 21.Bxa6 fxg5 22.Bxg5 Qg7 23.Bd3 with a crushing game) 21.Bxg5 Rxg5 ( 21…Qg7? 22.Bf6! ) 22.fxg5 Ne3 ( 22…Rf8 23.Rxf8+ Qxf8 24.Qxh7# ) 23.Rf7 Qxf7 24.Qxf7 Bxd3 25.Qf3! and the rest was easy: 25…Nc6 26.Qxe3 Bc4 27.Qf4 d6 28.Qf7 Rg8 29.h4 1-0
